Summer, childhood, beach games and the energy of wind... Spring-Summer 2021 collection is mixing water and wind in a sweet music that we translated into small windmills and displayed in our shop windows.
These items are referring to kinetic art and featuring works with some parts in motion.
Takis, Le Bassin (1988)
Charles and Ray Eames,
We made a swarm of small windmills, created with recycled materials: colored papers from the old “Catherine André” look books, corks, dressmaker’s pins, strings and bamboo stems.
The idea was to make windmills which could really go round at the slightest breeze and not only decoration for window shops. We made sure to minimize friction and thought about the lightness of material...
... today, these small windmills are only waiting for some puff of air to be alive.
